Help with day-to-day living

The RAF Benevolent Fund can provide financial support to serving members of the RAF in a variety of cases, from paying for unexpected expenses to help with essential living costs.

Financial help

If you have not received assistance from the RAF Benevolent Fund before you may be able to apply to us using our direct online application form, if what your require is under £750. Find out more.

If you are not able to use our online application form we ask that you speak to your Chief Clerk or PMS staff who can make an application to us on your behalf. We work closely with RAF stations to ensure that support reaches those who need it, when they need it.

Please note, small grants are usually made within two weeks of an application being received into the Fund's Welfare team. At times when the team are experiencing heightened demand for support, applications may take a little longer to process. Grants up to £750 are usually made available within 24-48hrs. 

For more information on the support we offer and for information on how you can apply for help, see our guide to our services.
